Graduate students who are in good standing in a degree program are eligible to take graduate courses at several graduate schools in Michigan with prior approval of their Home and potential Host Institutions[1]. This program enables graduate students to take advantage of unique educational opportunities throughout the state. See the information below for a list of participating institutions and MIGS liaison officers. 

PROCEDURE

First, the student and her/his academic advisor identify course(s) at a participating university that are needed for the student’s program of study and are unavailable at her/his Home Institution. Next the student obtains a MIGS application from the MIGS liaison officer at the Home Institution. When signatures of the student’s academic advisor and MIGS liaison officer have been obtained, signifying that the student is qualified and eligible to take course(s) for transfer back to the program of study, the Home Institution MIGS liaison forwards the application to the Host Institution MIGS liaison for review and approval. The Host Institution MIGS liaison will ensure that the course(s) will be offered in the anticipated semester or term and that there is sufficient space available to allow for enrollment by a guest student. Once admission has been approved by the Host Institution, the MIGS liaison or Admission’s Office at the Host Institution issues admissions documents and provides registration instructions to the student.

After completing the course(s), the student is responsible for arranging to have an official transcript sent from the Host Institution to the Home Institution. The student should also contact the MIGS liaison at the Home Institution to indicate that a transcript is being sent for posting on the academic record per guidelines of the Home Institution. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

FEES AND FINANCIAL AID: Students on MIGS enrollment pay tuition and other fees normally charged by the Host Institution for the services rendered. Students on MIGS enrollment are not eligible for financial aid from the Host Institution.

RESIDENCY STATUS is the same as at the Home Institution.

CREDIT: All credit earned under a MIGS enrollment will be accepted by a student’s Home Institution as agreed and posted according to the transcripting practices of the Home Institution.

GRADES earned in MIGS courses may be applied toward the Home Institution grade point average or used for credit toward a graduate degree as allowed by the Home Institution’s policy.

PART-TIME: A student may combine a part-time enrollment at the Home Institution with a part-time enrollment at the Host Institution with prior approval of the student’s academic advisor (and SEVIS officer for international F-1 students). The Home Institution agrees to obtain the documentation necessary to combine the enrollments into a single enrollment status and to update the student’s enrollment time status with the National Student Loan Clearinghouse or other time status reporting agency as appropriate.

FELLOWSHIPS: MIGS participation does not necessarily impact fellowship commitments made by the Home Institution for a given period. Financial aid issues should be negotiated by the student and appropriate officials prior to participating in MIGS.

ENROLLMENTS are limited to the minimum number of credits required for full-time graduate status at the Home Institution.

TRANSCRIPTS: The student is responsible for arranging to have one transcript certifying completion of course work sent from the Host Institution to the Home Institution.

[1] (The Home Institution is where the student is currently enrolled in a graduate degree program; the Host Institution is where the student wishes to be a guest.)

Consortium of Catholic Colleges
Marygrove College is a participant in the Detroit Area Consortium of Catholic Colleges. The other participating institutions are: Madonna University, Sacred Heart Seminary College, St. Mary’s College, and the University of Detroit Mercy.

The Consortium was established as a program of exchange of students and faculty among the participating institutions. The Consortium provides you the opportunity to take courses offered by the other institutions, courses that might not be available at Marygrove but could enrich your undergraduate program.

In accordance with Consortium agreements, a registered undergraduate Marygrove student may enroll in any member institution of the Consortium under the following guidelines:

Full-time students must take a minimum of eight hours at their home institution and be enrolled for a total of twelve or more hours.

Part-time students must register for a minimum of six hours, at least three (3) of which must be at the home institution.

Graduate, post degree, second degree, unclassified, and guest students are not eligible for the Consortium arrangement.

Approval for enrolling in courses at other Consortium institutions must be obtained from the administrator at the home institution. At Marygrove, the “Consortium Authorization Form” should be obtained from the registrar.

The academic dean has the authority to limit the total number of courses which a student may take at other Consortium institutions, both overall and during a specific term or semester. Normally, authorization will not be given to take a course at another Consortium institution if an identical or clearly comparable course is concurrently offered at the home institution.

Students may take no more than twelve (12) hours of Consortium courses during their undergraduate careers.

Transfer Credit Equivalency

Marygrove College is pleased to offer prospective students the ability to check the transferability of courses taken at other institutions. Please review the information provided below which will help you in understanding our transfer credit policy. We are continuously updating our transfer equivalencies; if a course is not listed, it has not yet been evaluated and may or may not be transferable

Generally, Marygrove will accept college level courses from an accredited institution if a grade of C (2.0 grade point average) or better was obtained and if the course is comparable to course offerings and programs of study offered at Marygrove. Although developmental courses (below 100 level) are not transferable, they may be used in determining course placement.

Marygrove College allows for the transfer of a maximum of 64 semester hours of credit from a two-year accredited institution. A maximum of 98 (with no more than 84 lower division credit hours – 100/200 level) semester hours of credit may be transferred from four-year colleges or universities. If you have attended both two-year and four-year institutions, you may transfer a maximum of 98 semester hours of credit from all institutions attended.

Transcripts must be sent directly from the institution to Marygrove in order to be deemed official and considered for evaluation.

General 

Student Responsibility
In order to earn a degree at Marygrove, you will need to follow all the procedures, meet all the general and specific requirements, and abide by all the academic regulations that appear in this catalog.

You should normally follow the degree requirements in effect at the time of your first registration at Marygrove, as long as you earn your degree within six years. You may, however, apply for graduation using the requirements of any catalog in effect while you attended the College, just as long as it is not more than 6 years old.

For professional certification, you must meet the current requirements set forth by the governmental and/or accrediting agencies that regulate certification in your area.

Because your degree is, finally, your degree, it is also your responsibility to learn and follow the requirements, policies, and procedures affecting your program. You should consult your academic advisor regularly to help verify that all degree requirements are being met in a timely fashion.

Undergraduate Degree Requirements
Undergraduate degree requirements are of two kinds: college degree requirements that are binding on all programs and specific degree requirements established by various departments or academic units that award specialized degrees (for example, the Bachelor of Social Work or Bachelor of Business Administration).

Below are the college degree requirements for Marygrove associate and bachelor degrees followed by an overview of specific requirements for particular degrees. Consult the program section of the catalog for the specific information about degree options and requirements in your area of study.

Developmental/Foundational Studies
Marygrove College believes that all students who are capable of benefiting from higher education should be provided with study and training appropriate to their needs, interests, abilities, and aspirations.

In keeping with this philosophy, Marygrove offers a series of courses that we group under the title Developmental/Foundational Studies. These courses are designed to insure adequate preparation in learning strategies, writing, and mathematics for those students with the potential for success in higher education.

Students are evaluated for placement into reading, writing and mathematics using ACT scores, Marygrove Placement Test results, and/or transfer credits. If your placement results indicate the need for course work to strengthen these competencies, you will be required to enroll in one or more of the following courses:

LS 105 Strategies for College Learning
MTH 100 Algebra
ENG 107

Introduction to Writing If your Competency test results indicate a need for more intense strengthening in mathematics, you will be required to enroll in the Developmental course MTH 099, entitled Pre-Algebra, before registering for MTH 100. Credits earned in this course, though counted for financial aid benefits, do not count in the GPA or toward the total number of hours required for a degree.

If you require additional skill building in basic mathematics, you will be referred to Student Support Services to complete the Basic Math Workshop, which carries no college credit.

Time limit for completion of developmental and/or foundational courses
If you are a new student (i.e., this is your first time in college or you are transferring less than 12 credit hours), you will need to complete all developmental and foundational courses as required by competency testing within the first 44 credits earned at Marygrove. If you have transferred 12 or more semester hours, you are required to complete these requirements within your first 36 hours taken at Marygrove. If the courses are not completed by that time, you will not be permitted to register for courses other than the developmental and foundational courses required in your program.

General Education
A complex array of political, economic, social, scientific, and technical forces continually transforms our world. Marygrove’s general education program engages these forces, providing opportunities to examine them from different disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. Our objective is not only to disseminate information about forces that shape our world but also to intensify our critical thinking about them.

For a full description of Marygrove’s general education requirements, see the General Education section of the undergraduate catalog.

Overview of Associate Degree Requirements

Total Credit Hours
Candidates for an associate’s degree must complete a minimum of 64 semester hours of credit in an approved degree program.

Credit Hours in Developmental and Foundational Studies
In order to earn an associate’s degree, you must complete all the developmental and foundational study courses in mathematics, learning strategies, and composition that were indicated by your placement test results.

Only 12 hours of lower division (100-200 level) composition courses, whether transfer or Marygrove credit, may be included in the 64 credit hours needed for an associate’s degree. If you have more than 12 hours of lower division composition credits, the surplus will count as general college credit beyond the minimum of 64 required for a degree.

Only 3 hours of basic algebra may be included in the 64 credit hours needed for the associate’s degree. If you have more than 3 algebra credits at a level below Marygrove’s MTH 105, they will count as general college credit beyond the minimum of 64 required for a degree.

General Education Requirements
General Education requirements for each Associate degree are listed in the section of the catalog that outlines your degree requirements.

The 15-Credit Hour Requirement

Overview of Bachelor (Baccalaureate) Degree Requirements
Marygrove has established general undergraduate degree requirements that apply to all candidates for bachelor (or baccalaureate) degrees. In order to earn a bachelor’s degree at Marygrove, you must meet the following criteria:

Total Credit Hours
Candidates for a bachelor’s degree must complete a minimum of 128 semester hours of credit in an approved degree program.

Credit Hours in Developmental and Foundational Studies
In order to earn a bachelor’s degree, you must complete all the Developmental/Foundational studies courses in mathematics, learning strategies, and composition that were indicated by your placement test results. Credits in Developmental level courses do not count in your total hours toward your degree.

Only 12 hours of lower division (100-200 level) composition courses, whether transfer or Marygrove credit, may be included in the 128 credit hours needed for a bachelor’s degree. If you have more than 12 hours of lower division composition credits, the surplus hours will count as general college credit beyond the minimum of 128 credits required for a degree.

Only 3 hours of basic algebra may be included in the 128 credit hours needed for the bachelor’s degree. If you have more than 3 algebra credits at a level below Marygrove’s MTH 105, they will count as general college credit beyond the minimum of 128 credits required for a degree.

General Education Requirements
 

You will need to complete the General Education Requirements for your degree. See the General Education section of the undergraduate catalog for specific requirements.

Majors and Minors
You are required to complete a major and a minor, or an interdisciplinary major, or two majors. Requirements for majors and minors are specified by the academic departments.

Credit-Hour Requirements in Your Major Field of Study
A “major” consists of one of the following:

  • a minimum of 30 semester hours of credit in a single academic discipline;
  • a minimum of 36 semester hours of credit in a specified group of related disciplines (i.e., a group major);
  • an individualized major; or
  • an interdisciplinary major.

At least 15 semester hours in your major must be completed at Marygrove. At least one of your courses must be designated as “writing intensive.” You will also complete a senior-year experience as part of your major.

The individualized major is a concentration comparable in depth and coherence to the typical major developed to satisfy an individual student’s goals:

  • It must define a systemic body of knowledge in relation to stated goals.
  • It must demonstrate a logical progression of study from basic concepts to general theories and methods of analysis.
  • It must include a component that demonstrates attainment of the conditions above, e.g., final project, integrative summary, or undergraduate thesis.

Procedures for approval of the individualized major can be obtained from your divisional dean.

An interdisciplinary major is one which requires a specified group of courses from more than one academic department and which aims to meet specified educational goals. The total number of credits required for the major must be at least 50 and should not exceed 72 semester hours. The fulfillment of the requirement for an interdisciplinary major satisfies the College requirement for a major and a minor concentration in a student’s degree program.

Credit-Hour Requirements in Your Minor Field of Study
A “minor” consists of 20 semester hours of credit in one discipline or 24 semester hours of credit in a specified group of related disciplines.

You are required to complete a major and a minor, or an interdisciplinary major, or two majors. Requirements for majors and minors are specified by the academic departments.

Related Discipline Requirements and Electives
Some major programs have specified requirements from other disciplines. While these are not counted as part of the major itself, they are an essential part of your total degree program. Frequently these additional requirements will satisfy the general education requirements of the College.

Through the selection of other courses that do not necessarily fulfill a specified degree requirement, you can pursue individual interests. You can enrich your life and expand your career opportunities through the thoughtful selection of electives.

The Senior-Year Experience
The senior-year experience is the capstone course for all Marygrove students. The course allows you to display your competence in your major field of study and gives you an opportunity to show your proficiency in several of the across-the-curriculum emphases.

The public sharing of the results of your final project with faculty, peers, family, and friends is your opportunity to display the extent to which you have been empowered by the Marygrove College experience.

The 30/36 Credit-Hour Requirement
All candidates for a bachelor’s degree must complete the final 30 semester hours of degree work at Marygrove College. A minimum of 36 semester hours of credit must be taken from upper division courses (numbered 300 or above), with a minimum of 24 of the 36 hours in the major and minor.

Grade Point Average
You must earn a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (C). In certain programs, additional GPA requirements must be met.

Transfer Credit
A total of 64 semester hours of credit may be transferred from all two-year institutions combined.If you transfer to Marygrove from another college, you must complete at least 30 semester hours of credit at Marygrove. You must also fulfill all major, minor and other requirements for the bachelor’s degree.

Bachelor of Science (B.S.)
The Bachelor of Science degree can be elected by students majoring in the following areas of study: biology, chemistry, environmental science, forensic science, general science, mathematics, and computer information systems. The general education requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree are the same as those for the Bachelor of Arts degree.
